With extra low dispersion glass and original lens coatings, this lens is superior in contrast, clarity and edge-to-edge sharpness.

Amazon.com

Capture fisheye imagery with a 180-degree angle of view with the Pentax DA 10-17mm fisheye lens. Designed for the Pentax *ist series of digital SLR cameras, the lens creates images with an expanded perspective, including images with a creatively deformed outlook and a sharp pan focus that extends throughout the entire frame. The image circle in DA series lenses, meanwhile, is designed to perfectly match the 23.5 x 15.7mm size of the CCD used in Pentax digital SLRs to optimize camera performance. Plus, the new design contributes to a drastic reduction in size, weight, and production cost compared to 35mm counterparts with similar specifications. Additional features include a 35mm equivalent focal length of 15-26mm; new water- and oil-repellant super-protective (SP) lens coatings for easy cleaning; extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass for superior sharpness and color correction; and a responsive Quick Shift Focus System for switching instantly from autofocus (AF) to manual focus (MF).

By K. Gittins on November 23, 2006
Sometimes you just need to go to the extreme - in this case it is really wide angle. In my old Canon film-camera days, I had the 15mm 2.8 fisheye which was an even bigger chunk of glass because of its speed.

Now that I have gone to the Pentax K100D camera, I was pleasantly surprised to see this 10-17mm lens was available. I was even happier because unlike the Canon lens, the Pentax is a zoom, so that not every shot has to be the distorted wide angle that you think of when you hear "fisheye". The lens goes out to the equivalent of about 26mm on a 35mm format, which is a very useful focal length as well.

The lens also allows manually tweaking the focus while in the auto-focus mode - something my 2 Sigma lenses warn against.

The only drawbacks to the lens that I see are that you can not mount a filter and the curved front element is exposed (same for the Canon). So, just use a little caution. And, unlike the old Canon, there are no rear filters either. Finally, for those who like to manually adjust the aperture ring - there isn't one. It's all set through the camera :-)

I could go on about the lens, but as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I've posted a few photos in the Amazon collection.

The DA 10-17 is a special lens. It is not the sort of lens that you would use every day or, even as a "walk around" lens. At the same time, it provides a field of view that you have a hard time achieving with a rectilinear lens. The widest angle lens for APS-C that I know of is the Sigma 8-16mm, which only gets about 121 degrees of view into the photo -- at 10mm, the DA fisheye gets 180 degrees -- have to watch your feet or they will be there too.

Other reviewers are right that you can't use filters with this lens; however, that is a common trait with fisheye lenses. Just be careful of the bulbous front element.

The lens itself is very sharp. Because of its wide angle of view, you will find that you need to shoot mostly at f8-11 to make the most of it. Colors are great. It has the ability to close focus. At 10mm, it is very "fishy" at 17mm very mildly so.

If you enjoy the fisheye view or are in to architectural photography, this is a special lens.

Edit: I am currently using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3and it has automatic defishing ability for this lens, which, at least for me, makes the lens more usable. There are just a lot of photos where the curved lines of a fisheye get pretty old...

Have owned this lens since December 2007 and have had a lot of fun with it. At 17mm, it functions like a conventional wide angle lens, but at 10mm it is truly a fish-eye. The flexibility cannot be beat! Image quality is excellent (color rendition and sharpness). It can produce some interesting perpectives once you learn how to exploit its characteristics.

The lens surface extends (bulges out) beyond the front rim of the lens which can expose it more than a conventional lens. However, Pentax claims that it has a special coating which is supposed to resist scratches. I am ultra careful and choose not to test the strenght of the coating!! The lens cap is a slip-on type vs. a clip-on type. The lens is a tad heavy, but solidy built.

The more I use this lens, the more pleased I am that I purchased it.

Every bit as advertised. A most unusual lense. It takes a while getting use to the lack of an apature ring but the lense is everybit worth it. If you are in a small room and need to take in the whole room this is the lense for you. The Lense is as sharp as all of the other pentax lenses that I have and the depth of field is tremendous.

Talk about a fun lens. I am doing fun stuff again. Of course too many fish-eye shots are not well received in a wedding shoot but the option to shoot in tight surroundings like stairs, or group up the groomsmen and bridesmaids and add a little flair is great! I've found nothing wrong with this lens and it's fun to see people's reactions to the shots. After some Photoshop lens correction the shots are can also be acceptably distortion free. Once again Pentax provides the value for the money.

I've gone sort of nuts buying Pentax lenses for my k5 and kx. I have the 10-17 Fisheye, 15mm Limited, 21mm Limited, 35 mm Macro Limited, 40 mm Limited, 70 mm Limited, 200mm DA*, 50mm Takumar m42 and just bought the 50mm f1.2 SMCA. I take a lot of events/street, flowers and nature shots. I find this to be my second or third most used lens which is saying a lot given that it is normally considered a niche lens. It's great to be able to capture the entire environment. The distortion actually is not objectionable in most cases. I find it adds to the composition. It's also fun to take close shots of people on purpose in some cases to exaggerate their features for comical effect. But make no mistake, you can take serious pictures with this lens. The quality of the 15mm Limited is much better when compared to the 15mm setting of this lens. But it still takes very sharp, contrasty pictures. It has one big Achilles heal - purple fringing. If you shoot dark objects against a bright sky, be prepared for purple fringing. Another minor detraction is the plastic barrel on this lens when compared to the Limiteds, although honestly it makes the lens lighter and doesn't affect it from a functional perspective at all. I really like this lens even with its idiosyncrasies. You can see my photos with EXIF info here: [...]
